How much is enough? | Kevin Cavenaugh | TEDxPortland

How much is enough? Kevin asks this profound question of our audience. By focusing on three topic areas of wealth, rent & equality – he challenges us on how we will choose to change our lives as he bridges the concepts of capitalism and socialism. What will you do with the power of enough? With special thanks to core the TEDxPortland organizing team, 70+ volunteers and cherished partners - without you this experience would not be possible. Our event history can be found TEDxPortland.com In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. Kevin is a prolific local developer of small commercial and residential buildings whose work adheres to the mindset that quality is not defined by the depth of one’s pockets. His developments include the LEED Platinum rated Burnside Rocket, The Zipper, The Ocean, and the nation’s first ground-up crowdfunded project, the Fair-Haired Dumbbell. Today, he’s turning his attention toward creating a better version of subsidy-less affordable housing. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

18 Things You've Been Doing Wrong

From putting a lid on boiling water to eating cheetos with chopsticks here are 18 Things You've Been Doing Wrong. Life hack 101! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 10. Taking Out the Trash Drilling holes at the bottom and sides of your trash bin might not be so bad of an idea. If you’re household or lifestyle means the trash piles up a lot and you find yourself having someone hold down the bin while you pull out the bag or keep one foot on the can to do so, you should consider drilling holes. Doing so allows less likeliness for suction issues, which is what keeps a lot of bags from being pulled out easy. 9. Scooping Ice Cream If you’re with friends or at a party and decide you don’t want to spend time waiting for the ice cream to thaw and then put in muscle energy to serve it, then you should cut the ice cream. Cutting it into portions makes it available for consumption faster and serving it to more than 1 or 2 people more efficient. Granted, this is only helpful if there’s a handful of you wanting to eat your cold treats right that moment. If you’re alone watching Netflix, then a spoon in the container’s all you need. 8. Frozen Ice Cream Of course, you always have to freeze your ice cream--unless you really want to drink it instead. But a better way than just sticking the tub in your freezer is to put the ice cream in a sandwich bag. Doing so helps avoid that hard ice cream you get when it’s opened and has been in the freezer too long. 7. Eating Cupcakes This one’s definitely something no one does. Apparently, the right way to eat a cupcake is by tearing or cutting the bottom half of the cupcake and sandwiching it over the top half. Even though it’s strange, what it does do is make for a neater snack and even the icing to cupcake ratio. 6. Potholes Did you realize the hole at the end of your pot handle can be used for your spoon? Not everyone has those fancy kitchen installations that lets you hang your pots over your kitchen island. Most kitchen devices end up stacked in cupboards. But people also use the handle holes as a place to keep the spoon. Doing this prevents you from setting it on your dirty counter or scrambling to find a plate to lay it down on when the phone rings. 5. Filling Water Instead of lugging a bin or huge jug to fill with water, which will inevitably get too heavy once you’ve finished, use a dustpan or a water bottle with a hole cut out the bottom to transfer water from the sink way easier. 4. Aluminum Foil You’re not alone if you’ve haphazardly tried to get some aluminum foil and accidentally pulled the whole roll out of the box. There’s a hack for that, actually, and it’s been right in front of you since forever. This little tab that no one ever pays attention to at the end of the 3. Eating Cheetos Maybe you’ve seen this picture of Star Wars star Oscar Isaac floating around on the internet. As ridiculous as it looks, lots of people at cheetos and other season heavy, cheesy snacks with chopsticks. It helps to not get any of that red or orange food residue all over your fingers that takes a few handwashes to really scrub out. 2. Putting a Lid on Boiling Water Here’s another spoon fact you didn’t know about. Have you ever heard that placing a wooden spoon over a pot of boiling water helps the water from spilling over? It sounds fake, but it apparently works. It looks like magic, but science can explain this one. The wooden spoon acts a destabilizer to the naturally unstable bubbles. When it reaches the surface of the spoon, the boiling water retreats, keeping your pasta or soup from making a mess on the stove top. 1. Dr. Seuss So this might make you completely rethink your childhood, but the correct way to pronounce the author’s name is “SOYce” not “Soose.” His friend, Alexander Liang, wrote a poem about how people have been pronouncing it all wrong this whole time. “You’re wrong as the deuce/And you shouldn’t rejoice/If you’re calling him Seuss/He pronounces it Soice.” Soice is spelled with and o and i. Even so, does anyone really think the world’s going to correct itself anytime soon?

Inside Zedd's $16 Million Mansion That Has a Skittles Machine | Open Door | Architectural Digest

In this episode of Open Door, Grammy-winning record producer and DJ Zedd gives an in-depth tour of his $16 million mansion in Benedict Canyon, an area of Los Angeles that's near Sherman Oaks and northwest of Beverly Hills. Zedd's self-decorated home is 9,500 square feet with views of the canyon and tons of full-length glass windows. See photos and read the full interview here: http://archdg.co/x3PLMMq The house is structured into three sections: work, living, and sleep. The work section has Zedd's recording studio and an unfinished gym. The driveway leads into the front entrance, which crosses a moat. A huge wall with cubbies holds art, awards, and silly memorabilia. For instance, Zedd's Grammy sits next to a poop emoji. At the end of a corridor, before going outside, guests can pick their favorite flavor of the rainbow from the Skittles machine. Zedd also has a server room and a "Costco Room" that contains just about anything he would need if he weren't able to leave the house for a long time. The bathrooms feature automated blinds that can sometimes surprise the person taking the shower early in the morning. The remote-controlled curtains in Zedd's bedroom make him the happiest of any feature in the house. Outside, the pool has a hidden jacuzzi / hot tub that's revealed when the pool's water level drops. The kitchen has four built-in hibachi grills, a pot filler above the stovetop (which Zedd says is the reason he bought the house), and built-in vacuums.
